cysts

I think Gryff has a cyst. He has a bump about the size of a pea on his back. I am going to call the vet in the morning to make an appointment. Does anybody else here have any experience with this?

Is it squishy or hard? Paco (our chihuahua) has a fatty deposit (a lipoma) on his left thigh. He's had it for about the past year. The vet said it's benign but will be watching it for signs of growth. It doesn't seem to hurt him at all.

Hopefully that's all you have. How old is Gryff? Paco is 12 and the vet said that as dogs age, fatty growths are fairly common.

Good luck!
Sandy

I had a dog with a lump. It turned out to be an entire cat claw fur and all. It came with the dog from the breeder. Ugh the smell, but I was the only one who could smell it until the vet took the claw out (which took 2 seconds to do). Then everyone knew the smell I'd been complaining about....oh did they LOL

Thinking about you Gryff

My friend's havanese had a little lump on his chest. Benign, just scared her when she found it.

Hope that is all it is.

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Has he recently had a shot? They can have a localized reaction to it and have a lump that can last for quite a while.

Ivy, I hope it's nothing serious. BTW, I like Gryff's new avatar - his face looks so cute.

Thanks Gina.

It is a hard lump. I'm pretty sure it's nothing serious, but I have an appointment on Thursday. $53 just for the vet to look at it! Gotta do it, though.

I'll keep you all posted.
